Big Dad Rides Small Bike as a Tribute to Late Daughter

(JustGiving/Peter Williams)

Peter Williams of Penzance, England is showing incredible strength after the loss of his daughter. On Friday at 10am, he began a 211-mile ride to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity.

In 2015, Peter lost his 7-year-old daughter, Ellie, to a rare form of brain cancer, only six months after she was diagnosed.

To honor his daughter he decided to begin his ride at Bristol Children’s Hospital where Ellie was treated. He’s also making the entire trip on her little pink bike, which is only 20″ high. Given Peter is 6 feet tall, that’s going to make for an additional challenge, but he’s up for it.

Aside from a small modification to the bike’s seat, he’ll be riding the bike as-is. “My knees clear the handlebars by about half an inch so it’s going to be really tight, but it’s a great bike,” he told the BBC. When he factors in his unique mode of transportation Peter estimates the ride from Bristol to Land’s End will take him a week to complete.

Ellie loved cycling and impressed her dad at age three, when she was able to ride without training wheels.

The bike he’ll be riding was her pride and joy – a present she received for her last Christmas.

So far Peter has raised £23,349 (roughly $30K US) through his JustGiving campaign, already doubling his £10,000 target.

What a guy! What a dad! Go, Peter, go!

Father and Son Escape Burning Truck in the Nick of Time

(News Channel Nebraska)

When 19-year old Minnesota man Kobe Sammons drove 500 miles to visit his family in Nebraska he thought he was leaving the heat from his welding job behind. When he arrived he told to his father, Jeremy, that his ride just wasn’t running right. So his dad hopped in the truck and the two went for a drive in hopes of discovering what the problem was.

A short while later they pulled over when Jeremy noticed smoke had entered the cabin of the truck. The smoke quickly turned to heat and it became apparent the engine compartment was on fire.

That’s when both men attempted to open their doors but they would not unlock.

The father wondered if this would be their final moments together.

“I told him he would have to break the glass or kick the door open. I couldn’t help him.” the elder Sammons told News Channel Nebraska.

But eventually Kobe was able to kick the door open.

“It was in those moments. Just when it had to open, the door opened.” Kobe’s dad said.

By the time firefighters arrived the truck was completely engulfed in flames. Authorities on the scene considered that the fire may have caused the doors’ unlocking mechanism to malfunction.

The truck can easily be replaced, the important thing is that this father and son duo escaped unharmed.

A Restaurant in Texas Serves up Hilarious Signs


El Arroyo is a restaurant in Austin Texas that clearly has great taste when it comes to humor. The establishment’s sign features plenty of puns but it’s not afraid to poke fun at pop culture too. And unlike the Indian Hills Community Sign In Colorado it references current events which includes tributes to cherished celebrities who have passed away.

With a solid 4 out of 5 star rating on their Tex-Mex dining experience – they’re as dedicated to satisfying hunger as they are to hilarity. But given there’s only one location, sadly, most of us will never get the chance to try their food.

The good news is that we can get their laughs to-go – because they’ve published two volumes of El Arroyo’s Big Book of Signs.

Scroll down to check out some of our favorites.


You can catch up with El Arroyo on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Dad Records ‘Paranormal Activity’ on Baby Monitor [VIDEO]


It’s late Saturday evening in Blyth Northcumberland, England. We can safely assume there’s a thick fog and a distant howl of a wolf echoing through the darkness of the night. Cut to scene of 31-year old dad Stephen Armstrong, inside his home, in the midst of retiring for the evening. As he gets into bed he glances at his baby monitor. He sees his little bundle of joy, sleeping like a baby.

Yet Stephen is completely frozen with fear.

There’s an eerie glowing orb floating around in the nursery.

“I just froze and I didn’t move,” he admitted to ChronicleLive. “I don’t usually believe in spirits or stuff like that, but this … was creepy.”

(Apparently he thawed out and did move – given he grabbed his phone and started filming the monitor.)

By the way, this wasn’t even the first spooky situation involving his nursery. Stephen told reporters that a doll had already mysteriously appeared in his baby’s crib. “I kind of brushed that doll one off, and said there had to be something else – some other explanation,” he said.

There was no word on whether the doll was a Good Guy doll (aka Chucky from Child’s Play).

“But when I saw the baby monitor, I went white and I even had to pluck up the courage to go in the room.

“When I did, it had vanished.”

Evil dolls. Glowing Orbs. It’s time to move Stephen.

Real Life Billy Madison Savagely Dunks on Daycare Kids


Remember that scene in Billy Madison when Adam Sandler held nothing back while playing dodgeball with a bunch of children?

In a case of life imitating art (yes, Sandler’s 1990s films are considered art!) Instagram user @rp_tune recently strung together some clips of him schooling daycare kids at basketball. Sure, the second hand footage is a little grainy (taken from a what appears to be a security camera monitor) but he was kind enough to polish it off with a solid soundtrack.

His dunks are impressive, but it’s the blocked shots that showcase a new level of not-in-my-house savagery when playing with 5-year-olds.

He also left a haunting warning for parents everywhere:


And while this dude’s daycare domination is one for the ages – lest we forget, the king of sting: Billy Madison.
